Mullen Three Class 3 EV rolls off Mississippi factory line

Mullen's Class 3 EV truck, the Mullen Three, received $79M in orders so far.

Mullen Automotive announced the Mullen Three, a Class 3 EV truck, rolled off the line at Mullen’s commercial vehicle assembly facility located in Tunica, Mississippi.

“We have been true to our commercial Class 3 vehicle production commitments and have now achieved a significant milestone with the first trucks rolling off the line,” David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive, said.

Mullen said it will be gradually ramping up the production rate through the balance of this calendar year. Once full acceleration has been achieved, Class 3 production capacity at the Tunica facility is currently planned at 3,000 vehicles annually per shift. As electric vehicle adoption rates increase, Mullen plans to add a second shift for Class 3 production, which will increase capacity to 6,000 total vehicles per year.

To date, the company said it received $79 million in purchase orders for the Mullen Three, Class 3 EV trucks from Randy Marion Automotive Group and MGT Lease Company.
